RYUICHI SAKAMOTO: CODA

$8 youth ten and under (door only)
From techno-pop stardom to Oscar-winning film composer, the evolution of Ryuichi Sakamoto’s music has coincided with his life journeys. An eminent film composer (MERRY CHRISTMAS, MR. LAWRENCE, THE LAST EMPEROR, THE REVENANT) Sakamoto became an iconic figure in Japan’s social movement against nuclear power following the Fukishima nuclear facility disaster. The film captures Sakamoto as he returns to music following a cancer diagnosis, while his haunting awareness of life crises leads to a resounding new masterpiece. RYUICHI SAKAMOTO: CODA is an intimate portrait of the artist, the man and what inspires his work.
Dir: Stephen Nomura Schible / 2018 / Japan / 102 min

“Stephen Nomura Schible’s documentary, Ryuichi Sakamoto: CODA is not only a portrait of a great artist, but a sensitive and engrossing depiction of the act of creation and its process.” – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle

“The result is an inspirational and deeply moving biopic that resonates long after the closing credits roll, not only because of the uncertain health of its subject, but the tragedies and joys of the human condition that give meaning to his work.” – Patrick Gamble, Little White Lies

SCREENING: FRI 11/8 9:00PM
Tickets available online and at the box office 1/2 hour before showtimes.
